The price has recently moved above $ 0.4200 and the Fib retracement level of 23.6% from the last drop from $ 0.4933 up to $ 0.4011 at the bottom. However, there are many upside obstacles for buyers near the levels of $ 0.4480 and $ 0.4500. More importantly, previous support at $ 0.4520 will likely act as a strong resistance.
